I I Jewels, Ltd.. now open in ,ltd. ..... Trlsh Vernon photo Tricia Mumford of Rehoboth Beach has opened up Jewels, Ltd. in an Ocean Outlets Seaside kiosk, offering high end cos- tume and bridge jewelry that may appear to be the real thing, but are nowhere near as damaging to the pocketbook. DEC to build new headquarters Officials at Delaware Electric Cooperative have announced ini- tial plans to begin new construc- tion and remodeling at the Green- wood headquarters, with ground- breaking set for the spring of 1996 and an anticipated occupancy in July, 1997. The last remodeling effort at DEC took place in 1961 when the Co-op had about 12,000 con- sumers. Today, the Co-op serves over 50,000 customers in rural Kent and Sussex counties. Incor- porated in 1936, the Co-op built a new structure in 1941 and current- ly operates out of part of that orig- inal facility. Titled "Building for a New Generation", the project will fea- ture a much-needed drive-in pay- ment window, more consumer parking, better .traffic flow both inside and outside, one-stop con- sumer services whenever possible and compliance with all require- ments of the Americans with Dis- abilities Act. A $3.8 million budget has been approved along with George- town's French & Ryan Architects, who will design and oversee the project. The Co-op will remodel its services and warehouse facility and eventually construct a new structure where the present front office is located on Rt. 13. DEC General Manager Paul Bi- envenue said: "The existing facil- ity is extremely inefficient opera- tionally with increasing mainte- nance costs and inadequate condi- tions for both consumers and em- ployees. We are building for a new generation of consumers and our service area continues to ex- perience significant growth." DEC will hold consumer open houses from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sat- urday, July 15 and Thursday, July 20. This will give Co-op mem- bers a chance to ask questions and gain an understanding of the need for the project. Continued from page 62 Gale, a former University of Delaware student, went on to the New York City Fashion Institute of Technology and worked on Seventh Street there, as well as in Milan, Paris and London. "But her real inspiration came from Indonesia - its artistry and craftsmanship - as well as the beauty of the country," Mumford said. Her geometric and interest- ing pieces start at an unbelievable $12. For those in search of a more el- egant look, there are classic pearls and cabochons, from three strand chokers to those your mother may have worn to the prom. The pre-Columbian pieces, which are made in Peru, look as if they belong in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and even come with a history of that particular design. The "tumi" knife bracelet, for instance, is comprised of a num- ber of these small implements which were used to cup up food, and even perform surgery. A Mochica swirl design represents spring and wildflowers and was found on the headdresses of the nobility.

Who knew owls were so fraught with mean- ing? Any of these elaborate pieces would look at home at a Broad- way opening or dinner out on the town in Rehoboth Beach. A shopper on a tight budget (who isn't?) might be afraid to venture into Jewels, Ltd., under the impression that it is an actual jewelry store from what is seen in the display cases from the outside. But don't be fooled by appear- ances. The price of most items ranges from $15 to $90 to a high of $150 for the more intricate vermeil pieces. "I've had people come in and ask me to fix a bracelet or to tight- en up a loose stone," said the for- mer Dewey Beach Club bartender, who also spent a number of years in the real estate business before settling in to raise her two chil- dren. "You can save anywhere from twenty to fifty percent off depart- ment store prices. I don't think there is anywhere in Sussex Coun- ty that handles this variety of jew- city," Mumford said. The cubic zirconium studs, for instance, are $30 for one carat and $45 for two, a far cry from the second mortgage one would need to pay for the real thing. "I also want to emphasize that these are In'st quality items - not seconds - and the styles are totally up to date, not last year's sensa- tions," Mumford said, and cater to every taste and occasion. Jewels, Ltd. will be open year round and is located near Christ- mas Tree Hill in the Ocean Out- lets. 00V[ARK A.
